Chinese tennis veteran puts up valiant effort

China's Zheng Jie, paired with Chan Yung-Jan of Chinese Taipei, returns a volley during the women's doubles final game at the Australian Open tennis tournament in Melbourne January 30, 2015.

The Zheng-Chan pair lost to Bethanie Mattek-Sands of the US and Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic 6-4, 7-6 (5) to finish as runners-up in the tournament. Zheng, 32, China's first Grand Slams doubles winner with Yan Zi at the 2006 Australian Open and Wimbledon Open was China's only hope at winning a title after Peng Shuai crashed out from the round of eight in the current Australian Open. Rumors are in the air that this could be Zheng's last chance to win another Grand Slams title as she may retire later this year. [Photo/IC]
